fund raiser, and then he'll be there tomorrow for the celebration, the opening of the george w. bush presidential library. all jokes about my pet goat aside, george busch and library being in the same sentence but what does it mean for w? is this the renewal or revival of the bush legacy? >> there has been the whole george bush is back and the "washington post" did a poll that he is back in a popular sense. i'm not sure the data backs that. we did a poll a week ago we hadn't asked about bush for a while. ours is do you feel positively or negatively or neutral towards this person? and his positives were up by 3 percentage points from 31 to 35%. what dropped a lot were his negatives. but it's not like people are suddenly in love with george bush. he has gone into retirement almost into recollusion in a way, right? he has been out very little given a couple of speeches. he has painted his paintings. [ laughter ] >> and he has been kind of humorous george bush in the way he is. so this is a coming out -- i guess return to the public stage, but it has the appearances of something that will be brief. i

president is entitled to and does do. was it a prop when george w. bush put his arm around him at the foot of the world trade center. i don't think it was a prop. >> sure it was a prop. but what you will see--you're right, a lot of that is correct but what's not right and what he shouldn't do is in the next few days you're going to see him skillfully and rhetorically tie boston to gun control. you can watch and test me as prognosticator. >> michael: jack burkeman has the final word. i don't agree with you at all but i do love these conversations. >> a pleasure. many thanks. >> michael: up here in "the war room," in a job done in tough weeks the president would have said this is one of the toughest. no one knows more about pushing through the tough times than laney davis. he'll join us after the break. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. barack obama when the sox, celtics, operators pa

looking at the construction of the george w. bush library. such an enormous building. how many books could it possibly hold? all right and of course we have president bush himself who said some people are surprised i can even read. he literally said that recently. bush is not revealing some of the people who have donated to his he library. apparently they're a little embarrassed by it, so it's not public information. some polls have him rising after we forget what a clown he was. i don't know why i paused there. like it's a big scandal. approve, 47%. of course his disapprove is larger but that's one poll. if you look at nbc though, not quite as much, 35% still view him as positive, and 44% say negative or very negative. so those numbers are still pretty bad. when asked for an explanation president bush told the dallas morning news much of my presidency was not defined by what actually happened. well that's exactly right, of course. now we bring in the panel. any chance, chris that george bush recess states his reputation? >> of course. the man has nowhere to go but up. it was t
